. >>> time for the global markets report. kelly evans is standing by in london. what did i say, the ftse was up a little. nothing to write home about. >> joe, i'm sorry, it's nothing but a sea of red overhere. mario monti's decision to resign over the weekend is having quite an impact on markets. i want to show you those who are most affected. i know carolin will join us with the political details been but here are the market's verdict. you're seeing the eye toolan tanks taking it on the chin. a couple of them were halted in trade earlier after being down more than 5%. now, this, of course, is one reason why the ftse mib, which we can show you is the weak performer today. down 3.4%. so pretty damming indictment of this decision over the weekend. the ibex down over the weekend. so spain and portugal, seeing its index down over more than is % is showing its concern. joe, the ftse is at least holding up relatively better. it's down only .3% today. these losses follow a trading session that was setting up to be relatively strong. we saw asian stoxx doing decently well, so just kind of unders

to do it. >> let's get to kelly evans, talk to the global markets. kelly, i want to tie this to you, tie this to your purview over there. every year, i get a tie from van ek and i got -- the first one was bernanke, a picture of him in a helicopter. and then i got one with draghi and a can and euro signs. yesterday, it's back to bernanke with the helicopter, but it's alternating with draghi with euros because now he is out helicopter draghi. so we're all in concert in a world that can't seem to exist without liquidity. we wasn't do anything based on our feds. it's not a great world to be in. >> well, ben bernanke has given a great analogy. it's funny you bring that up today because it's partly what we're seeing as we look over to the italian and spanish debt auctions that haven't wrapped up their fund rt for the end of the year. it's still a weak session for european equities. just in fact last couple of minutes, we've had news from the euro group where after last night, it agreed on a common supervisor, the ecb under margo draghi. this morning, they agreed finally on the disbursement of
they print this paper. kelly evans is standing by in london and may have some views on the man being ownered t today. i didn't know the newspapers honor people like that. oh, you see, that's the way to hold it. >> yeah. you showed damian hurst. >> i can hold a mean newspaper, andrew. mario draghi is the financial person of the year. this is from the inside, it's not their front cover. but this is their big spread. i thought about your comment about the tie, joe. a couple of years ago, it was ben bernanke who was suddenly on the lips of everyone in the world for coming to the rescue. it's quite clear that this year is the year of mario draghi. i wonder if "time" magazine would not decide to name him person of the year. but the fact that he is in the running tells you quite a lot about the importance of europe this year. earlier today, we were talking about the fact that they had picked trichet on in the past. he doesn't necessarily regret it. he said oppose dollars to some of the other types of running, they look for someone who is having a positive impact. they did consider angela merkel. th
across the pond. kelly evans is standing by in london. miss evans. >> good morning andrew and everyone. we were looking higher before the open, but we've quickly seen the sell-off across the board. what's interesting about the story today is it's not so much as macro driven as micro. i want to show you a couple of the names we're hearing from this morning. i'll start with the good news, i guess. h&m, the retailer, did come out with a sales decline in november comps, but it was less than expected. those shares responding up about 3%. more broadly, kpn is expanding its -- carlos slim bought more than a quarter stake in over the summer. the concerns is having to reinvest in a broad environment of sluggish revenue in order to stay profitable going forward. aggreko, this is a power generator supplier here in the uk, down 15% after it was talking about the outlook for 2013. more muted than what certainly people had been expecting. and holcim, the world's biggest cementmaker, it's reinvesting, taking write-downs and charges in its fourth quarter in order to cut operations in most of the of it

't know yet, do we? >> i think so. kelly evans, we'll see if she's standing by. >> hello. we're here. happy to report that 11-11 was not tend of things for us. i want to draw your attention to an interesting story. we look to that country as a barometer for the rest of the west. so much of its debt has been held internally. overnight, we learned in the third quarter japanese debt hit a record. at the same time, japanese investors are buying polish debt, looking for better yields and, again, as we wonder about the vulnerability of this country with the highest debt load in the world, keep these important developments in mind. you can see the nikkei down about 1% here. partly on some of the recall bragz of japan's outlook. but also, of course, on new about the fiscal cliff, sent stocks around the world tumbling. we should mention a lot of trading activity has diminished as people approach the first of the year. we saw after a significant weakening that it is rebounding today, but pretty much everything is. flows are going into the dollar as the safe haven trade. the euro/dollar down ab
